After news broke that Ann Curry would be leaving the Today Show, word has it that NBC colleague Hoda Kotb may be Curry’s replacement as early as next week.
New online reports suggest that Hoda Kotb may be the new co-host of Today alongside Matt Lauer. Kotb, who hosts Today alongside Kathie Lee Gifford on the fourth hour of the show, is no stranger to morning television viewers.
Although some may be surprised that Hoda Kotb’s name has been thrown into the mix, reports indicate that Kotb scored well in focus groups for NBC back in 2007 during her battle with cancer. Kotb joined NBC back in 1998.
If Hoda Kotb does replace Ann Curry next week, it could end the 16-year career of Curry on NBC.
